Over the past five years serious dangers linked to hip replacement devices have come to light. Hip replacement surgery has become increasingly more common due to an active aging population and development of different types of hip implant devices. Close to 1 million of these surgeries have been performed over the past several years. These surgeries include total hip replacement, partial replacement and hip resurfacing. Unfortunately, many patients developed dangerous medical injuries and required additional surgeries as a result of unsafe and defective hip implant products. Warnings have been issued by the FDA and products recalled.
